Big Banks Could Eventually Warm Up To Bitcoin And Ripple

“As such, I do not believe that big banks will necessarily crush either Ripple or Bitcoin for that matter. While banks are actively investing in and working to develop blockchain-based solutions, it's going to take a bit more time for banks to come around to the idea of relying on a cryptocurrency and for the …

You Can Unlock $10000 Worth of Cryptocurrency at This Art Exhibition

Last weekend, I got a new tattoo. It's an abstract design, a kind of totem pole made from geometric shapes with an amorphous form positioned near the top that disrupts the symmetry, but somehow keeps the overall balance of the piece. It's a design that inexplicably “spoke” to me. After the piece was …

Nasce in procura la task force per le indagini su disastri e incidenti sul lavoro

Una task force, formata da uomini delle forze dell’ordine, pronta a intervenire in tempi rapidi in caso di incidenti sul lavoro, incendi, intossicazione da farmaci, gravi incidenti automobilistici e ferroviari. La ha creata il procuratore aggiunto Tiziana Siciliano, responsabile a Milano del Sesto dipartimento della procura, che si occupa fra l’altro di colpe mediche, reati ambientali e tutela del lavoro.
“La gestione dell’emergenza è complessa e coinvolge molti soggetti. Già in passato abbiamo sottoscritto protocolli con l’Ats – spiega Siciliano – Negli interventi è importante che ci sia una regia e un collettore unico, anche perché i primi passi di un’indagine sono spesso i più importanti. La nuova squadra è a disposizione di tutti i magistrati, sette giorni su sette, notte compresa. Sempre pronta ad andare sul posto. A coordinare il gruppo di lavoro siamo io e il commissario di polizia locale Maurizio Ghezzi. La proposta

New story in Business from Time: Trade War Fears Deal U.S. Stock Market Its Worst Week in 2 Years

Stocks around the world plunged Friday as investors feared that a trade conflict between the U.S. and China, the biggest economies in the world, would escalate. A second day of big losses pushed U.S. stocks to their worst week in two years.

Investors fear that if China responds in kind to sanctions on $60 billion worth of Chinese imports the White House announced on Thursday, it will be a first step toward a full-blown trade war that could damage the global economy and slash profits at big U.S. exporters like Apple and Boeing.

The market’s two biggest sectors slumped the most. Technology stocks have made enormous gains over the past year, but since they do so much business outside the U.S., investors see them as particularly vulnerable in a trade dispute. The sector dropped 7.9 percent this week.

Banks also fell sharply. Amid the trade-war rumblings, investors fled to the safety of bonds and drove down yields, a potential negative for bank profits. That marked a reversal from earlier read more
